5. Air Jordan 4 Tour Yellow
It seems like the color yellow is making a comeback as one of the hottest colors around. It’s no surprise that Nike had to do it again and make an Air Jordan in “Tour Yellow”. This classic sneaker is sure to be a showstopper with its Yellow upper, accented with Dark Blue, Grey and Black while finishing it off with a White midsole. This drop is coming soon, available 8/28 at 8am. Set your alarms, you won’t want to miss out on this one!
4. Diana Taurasi x LeBron 18 GOAT Vision
These two GOATS created the shoe of the year... Heading into her 17th WNBA season, Taurasi has teamed up with Nike to bring a sneaker that showcases talent in a subtle way. With sports newspaper accents and bright orange laces, this shoe is sure to be in the headlines. Dropping 8/27 these are sure to be a sellout.
3. Space Hippie 01 - Carbon Green This is Trash
The “This is Trash” sneaker isn’t lying..
The Space Hippie is a shoe that is 50% recycled material. The uppers are made of 90% recycled polyester which comes from recycled plastic bottles, t-shirts, and scraps of yarn. The sneaker also features a sole that is made from ZoomX foam scraps. The same material that makes up Nike’s NEXT% running shoe. To top it all off, Nike is ditching the double box shipping method and sending the shoe out in a single shoebox that is made of repurposed material and printed on with plant based ink. So if you’re conscious about your carbon footprint and your impact on the world, then this shoe is definitely the one for you! Cop your pair on 8/20 and show the world your efforts in staying green.
2. Dunk High 1985 Black Acid Wash
Okay, so tie dye and acid wash is making a comeback. It’s all over TikTok, which is why Nike hopped on the trend QUICK. We know about bleaching of shirts and pants.. But what about sneakers? Taking it back with the timeless “Dunk High 1985”, Nike is doing it in style. With an acid wash treatment on the black overlays, a yellowed leather underlay, an aged midsole with grey rubber outsole, and the classic black swoosh; this release is sure to be far out, dude. Dropping on 9/17 this is totally a blast from the past.
1. Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1
Okay, is it just me or is everyone else DYING for this collab to drop? The first sighting of these shoes happened in Paris at the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring 2022 fashion show. It is said that this collection is going to feature 21 (YES!! 21!!) Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1s. The collab will contain the Air Force 1 Mids and the Air Force 1 Lows.
